Yes. ZFS encryption uses GELI to encrypt the block devices
that are then used by ZFS, like this:
# gpart create -s gpt ...
# gpart add -t freebsd-zfs
# geli init ...
# geli attach ...
# zpool create ...
# zfs mount ...
Like the manual UFS approach (partition, geli, newfs, mount),
ZFS is initialzed by the installer (partition, geli, z/create,
z/mount) for further use. So basically it's the same approach,
which in my opinion leads to the conclusion that adding UFS
encryption to bsdinstall should be possible without bigger
